My name is Awkward Muslim Girl, and I’m addicted to Netflix.
There. I said it. Gah.
Seriously though, I think I have a real problem. I’ve been staying up into the wee hours of the morning watching some stupid show that I don’t even like just because its right there. I feel like that’s all I do anymore. I sit at home, and I watch Netflix. Thank God school is starting soon. Maybe I’ll actually do something productive with my time.
Its just so freaking addictive. I don’t even watch TV anymore. Just internet. I watch the internet. And I spend the whole day doing it. I find a new show to watch, and then I feel obligated to watch every single episode of that show. And until I finish the series, I’m preoccupied with looking up spoilers and thinking about the next time I can sneak into my room and watch my stupid TV show in private. I sound like a legit addict. Eff.
But I don’t care. Who needs friends when you have 8 seasons of Weeds at your fingertips? (Please don’t judge me.) Or better yet, 8 seasons of Charmed. Or 4 seasons of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. And don’t even get me started on the Indian movies!
But no matter how comforting the ability to stream TV shows at the push of a button may be, at the end of the day (which, more recently has become 5am) I always end up feeling like this cat…
Moral of the story: Netflix is mostly porn. I found this out the awkward way.
